Free Little Farmstand Take some produce, give some produce!

Growing an edible garden can often mean growing a surplus of a given item. The Free Little Farmstand was created as a way to swap and share what we grow in our gardens with each other! The stand provides free produce grown from the Teen Corps Garden, Community Garden Campus and Community Garden plot holders. Our neighbors and community members are welcome to enjoy the delicious and nutritious bounty!

The Free Little Farmstand is located in the Community Garden Campus at the Conservatory and, like the rest of the Community Garden, is always free to the public.

An enormous thank you is owed to Conservatory volunteers for constructing and contributing to the Farmstand.
Community Garden Plot Rental Program Community Gardens offer a variety of benefits to their communities. They improve access to fresh food and serve as a space for neighbors to connect and reflect on nature's beauty. Participants rent plots to be a part of a functional community garden. This garden also serves as a model for participants in the Conservatory's Growing to Green program.

Please refrain from picking or eating produce grown in the Community Garden. A Free Little Farmstand is available.

Plot Availability
Garden plots are currently full. To be added to the plot wait, please contact Sean McKay at Sean will identify ways to get involved with the Community Graden or find a plot in another local community garden.
